Russia-backed forces attacked Ukrainian positions 35 times in this reporting period, Ukrainska Pravda reported, citing the ATO [Anti-Terrorist Operation] dispatch.

Militants concentrated their fire on the Maritime and Donetsk lines, attacking Peski for two hours with mortars as well as grenade-launchers, heavy machine guns and an armed BMP.

The Avdeyevka industrial zone and Butovka mine were also attacked. At about 18:00, militants fired an armed BMP and anti-aircraft system on Ukrainian positions at the approaches to Semigorya, wounding one Ukrainian soldier.

Near Maryinka on the Maritime line, 82-mm mortars were fired, and grenade-launchers were fired near Starognatovka. Small arms and heavy machine guns were used to attack Lebedinskoye and Talakovka. Another Ukrainian soldier was wounded at Vodyanoye about 22:00 from a grenade attack.

On the Lugansk line, militans fired grenade-launchers on Krymskoye and near Stanitsa Luganskaya.
